The GeForce NOW streaming service did not have a particularly good year. At the beginning, support for it was withdrawn by companies such as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Xbox Games Studios, Codemasters, Bethesda, Ubisoft, 2K Games and Activision Blizzard. However, the near future looks pretty good for her, if only thanks to yesterday’s GOG.com announcement. Well, its representatives announced on Twitter that they have established cooperation with Nvidia and the productions available on this platform can be played in the cloud thanks to GeForce NOW. In a similar way, the “greens” cooperate with Steam and the Epic Games Store.
GOG with GeForce Now integration – Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3 to start
More details about this integration are not yet known. It was only stated that the first productions that will receive support for GeForce NOW on GOG.com will be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Cyberpunk 2077. It is worth noting that the presence of the latter production in Nvidia’s streaming service was announced in February this year. We learned then that the upcoming title from CD Projekt RED will be available with ray tracing support (provided we have the appropriate level of subscription). In turn, the former is already present in the service via Steam.
What exactly is GeForce NOW?
GeForce NOW full service has been running since early February 2020.
As we have already mentioned, GeForce NOW allows you to play in the selected titles we own (the list of supported ones can be found here) in the cloud, i.e. through the Internet image transfer from Nvidia servers to our computer, laptop, Nvidia Shield or mobile devices with Android or iOS systems (in beta via Safari). What are the benefits? Well, thanks to the described service, we can enjoy all the graphic bells and whistles offered by games, even when our equipment is not the most efficient. All this, however, provided that we have a stable connection to the network.
There is an option to use the GeForce NOW service for free, but it comes with some limitations. A single session cannot last more than an hour and we do not get the chance to run ray tracing in productions that support it. You must purchase a subscription to lift these bans. The monthly fee is PLN 25, and the half-yearly fee is PLN 125 (including a free month).
